Review: Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral


Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: February 2nd, 2012
Number of Pages: 272
Where I got this book: Library
My rating: 4.5/5

Goodreads Summary:

"After her mother died, Glory retreated into herself and her music. Her single father raised her as a piano prodigy, with a rigid schedule and the goal of playing sold-out shows across the globe. Now, as a teenager, Glory has disappeared. As readers flash back to the events leading up to her disappearance, they see a girl on the precipice of disaster."

Review:

I can honestly say I've never read (er, or looked at, or whatever) a book quite like this one before! Very different from my usual fare! This book is few on words, and the story is mostly carried out through beautiful photographs, in a sort of scrapbook style. It kind of made me feel like a kid again....where I just wanted to drink in all those beautiful pictures. You kind of forget about the lack of words after awhile. It's a really interesting story told in a very beautiful, intriguing way.

This sounds really interesting and different to all the other YA out there, I'll have to grab a copy for myself!

I sorta think I would love this book. Thanks for the review. I love any book that makes me feel young again.
